HENDERSON, Natalie Dec. 15, 1998 Aug. 1, 2016 Our beautiful shining girl: Natalie, a rising senior at Roswell High School, was smart, funny, sassy, and strong, a free spirit with a gorgeous smile that could make your day or your week. She was a leader in the award-winning Color Guard of the Roswell High School Band, a life guard for Swim Atlanta, a talented singer, a guitar player, and a lover of animals who volunteered countless hours to animal rescue. Natalie had a loving heart and an infectious zest for life. Unusual for one so young, she had the courage to always be, unapologetically, herself. Natalie will forever be loved and missed by all whose lives she touched. Natalie is survived by her parents, Suzanne and Matthew Henderson; sister Rachael; grandparents Virginia and Gerald Pryor and Jean and Mack Henderson; aunts and uncles Jill Pryor and Edward Krugman, Karen and Cary Henderson, and Jaime and Burleigh Leonard; cousins Pryor and Lilah Krugman, Kristen and Kyle Henderson, and Jessie and Katie Leonard; great aunt and uncle Carole and Robert Madden; and godparents Sharon and Ken Morselander. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August 5, 2016, at 10:00 a.m.at Roswell Presbyterian Church, 755 Mimosa Blvd, Roswell, Georgia 30075. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to Companion Animal Connection, 310 Debord Lane, Waleska, Georgia 30183.
